Ship Facts: Viking Europe Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Europe Deck Plans
One of our best vacations (and we have done many)

It probably compared equally to Seabourn for the quality of service and food (and we loved our Seabourn Croatia cruise). Everything was extremely well organized, air arrangements made by Viking were better priced than anything I could find on my own. When we got to Marseille our luggage took a bit longer to come out so by the time we exited into the arrival hall there was no rep to be found. After about 25min she finally appeared and told us that the bus had left without us. Within minute she got us a taxi that drove the 2 of us to Avignon where the Viking staff paid the 196E charge for the ride.

We received the most wonderfully warm welcome from everyone. Our cabin was smallish but surprisingly comfortable with tons of drawers and hanging space. The bathroom had a medicine cabinet which was so convenient as we usually have to balance multiple toiletries on the sink. L'Occitane toiletries are a nice touch.

We thought chef Benjamin did a terrific job with his cooking. He had a couple of misses but many many hits. And they did change the wine for dinner for at least 4 or 5 evenings with some very good selections.

We took all the tours -included and optional. They ranged from pretty good to great. The staff at the restaurant was just unbelievable, like the level you get in top NYC restaurants. The rooms were cleaned spotlessly. Met a bunch of lovely people who have done many of these cruises. My husband and I had actually paid for our next Viking cruise (to Bordeaux) before even going on this one. Now we can't wait till 2014
